Over the Sunday and Monday of the May Bank Holiday Weekend the Battlefield Line presents a selection of vintage toy trains at Market Bosworth Station. from days gone by the Good Shed will be hosting a number of toy trains and sets from yesteryear. from Hornby to Tomy and tinplate to plastic. The trains cover a period that extends over the last 100 years and a variety of manufacturing materials and gauges.

Inside the Goods Shed will be displays which showcase a wide range of train and railway sets from the last century along with some selected exhibits of related interest. These are not necessarily scale models, but the trains children could rip out of Christmas wrapping paper and play with there and then.

We do hope you can join us at Market Bosworth for a train filled weekend, showing off engines and sets that used to delight the children of yesteryear, when many toys still had ‘Made in Great Britain’ stamped on them.

Next to the Goods Shed the trains of the Battlefield Line will be passing through Market Bosworth Station offering rides throughout the weekend, and both complimenting and dwarfing their smaller cousins inside the shed.

Food & Drink
Basic refreshments are available at Market Bosworth. Refreshments are also available at Shackerstone Stations Victorian Tea Rooms and the Shenton Station Cafe.

And Beyond the Railway.
And don’t forget there is Bosworth Battlefield at the end of the line to explore.
So why not come early and combine a train and medieval day out? More than just a train ride, a journey into history!
